I'd rather see them testing vigorously and thoroughly than succumbing to time pressure, skipping tests and ending up "doing a Hubble". This beast will be at L2.... for all intents and purposes, unreachable if the slightest thing goes wrong. There will be no JWST Repair Missions if that happens.

That's why I started the thread, my concerns for doing this right, they only have one chance.
Truth needs no defense.  Nobody can take those footsteps I made on the surface of the moon away from me.
